alivemagdolene: (Will Work For Social Change)
Tom gets up at 6:00 AM to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot with good, clean drinking water because some liberal fought for minimum water quality standards. He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure their safety and that they work as advertised.

All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employer's medical plan. Because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance, now Tom gets it too. He prepares his morning breakfast — bacon and eggs this day. Tom's bacon is safe to eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry. Tom takes his morning shower, reaching for his shampoo. His bottle is properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount that is contains because some liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and the breakdown of its contents. Tom dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree-hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air. He walks to the subway station for his government-subsidized ride to work; it saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor.

Tom begins his work day; he has a good job with excellent pay, medical benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Tom's employer meets these standards because Tom's employer doesn't want his employees to call the union. If Tom is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed he'll get worker's compensation or an unemployment check because some liberal didn't think he should lose his home to temporary misfortune.

It's noon time. Tom needs to make a bank deposit so he can pay some bills. Tom's deposit is federally insured by the FDIC because some liberal wanted to protect Tom's money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the depression.

Tom has to pay his Fannie Mae underwritten mortgage and his below market federal student loan because some stupid liberal decided that Tom and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his lifetime.

Tom is home from work. He plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive to dads; his car is among the safest in the world because some liberal fought for car safety standards. He arrives at his boyhood home. He was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers Home Administration because bankers didn't want to make rural loans. The house didn't have electric until some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didn't belong and demanded rural electrification (those rural Republican's would still be sitting in the dark).

Tom is happy to see his dad, who is now retired. Tom's dad lives on Social Security and his union pension because some liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Tom wouldn't have to. After his visit with dad, Tom gets back in his car for the ride home. He turns on a radio talk show. The host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. He doesn't tell Tom that his beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Tom enjoys throughout his day. Tom agrees, "We don't need those big government liberals ruining our lives.
After all, I'm a self-made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have."

Russia Tests Largest Conventional Bomb

Russia successfully tested the largest airborne non-nuclear bomb, delivering a blast four times more powerful than the U.S.' "Mother of All Bombs".

Like you've never wanted to take someone down this way. The video description on YouTube reads as follows:

At the 2007 comic-con Kevin Smith was doing his thing, when this man-tittied punk rolls on up and starts spouting the master as he takes the pupil down!Thanks to everyone who made this youtube's 1 video of the week! (in entertainment!) and I guess I should say that I'm pleased that this video got big enough for some people to pirate it! The question the large breasted man asks is: "Do you ever plan on making an original movie without rehashing any of your old characters that doesn't suck?"

If you can't see or hear this (I know YouTube embeds don't work on my browser) click here.

A new chunk of art is indeed up over at my art page. Another one now in the private collection of Miss Harmony, this one is "Girls for Pele". Yeah, there's a back story, but isn't there always? Nertz to that noise. Go have a look! My love and thanks to those that comment. No, seriously.

New Artz!

I have new artz over at my art page. The new one ("In the Springtime of His Voodoo") hails from the private collection of the fabulous Miss Harmony. And no, she won't sell it to you, so don't ask.

Hey, you all. There is some new "art" over at what can generously be called my art gallery. The two new ones are portraits of Coppertop and Manda Bear. If you visit their respective sites and have a look at their pictures, you can judge for yourself the resemblance. I personally don't feel the Coppertop one came out as good at it could have. That is all. And one more thing....

THAT is all.

Two versions of basically the same picture in my head are new and up. And yes, they do faintly resemble the "Strength" card in the Tarot, but I can't tell you anything else about them, really. I have no idea half the time what I draw.

Would you people be so kind and so lovely as to comment my sorry little art page so it doesn't look so untended? I mean, I tend to it, obviously, but I would be ever so grateful if you were to plant a small (or big, or whatever suits you) hello and/or remark on my scrawlings. Much thankage in advance from the Rtist (WHO GETS THAT REFERENCE??!! ANYONE?! ANYONE?!).

If you can't see it here, you can also find it here.

The best part is being able to pick out the ones you know as they morph. Trippy.

A Personality Test From

You are exceptional and unique. Your quest in life is to identify exactly who you are and why you're here. What's important to you is the journey of self discovery, determining who you are today is not the same as who you'll be tomorrow.
You resist being categorized and are quick to question any social standard that you sense someone imposing on you. Stereotypical gender roles always interest you and, in your mind, connect to issues that most other people would never consider related.

You are particularly accepting of other people and have a special talent for seeing people's true selves instinctively. It takes time for you to trust your gut instinct about people because even you don't believe that someone could be so right about another person's nature so quickly. This intuitive sense about what people are thinking is your special talent. You may think it is available to everyone and that others just ignore it, but in truth others could never develop the skill to the level which comes naturally to you.

To you everything happens on a personal level. Your friends come to you for advice because they know that you'll love them for who they are and put yourself in their shoes to look at the world. Your advice, although varied in delivery, usually boils down to "be true to yourself" and "listen to your heart." You are also an excellent confidant because things told to you virtually never return to anyone through the grapevine.

You focus more on nurturing others' self esteem than any other type. As a result of this naturally caring nature, people often turn to you for moral support. You exude this quality so strongly that even strangers will sometimes spontaneously begin confiding their deepest secrets in you.

You are by far the most talented of all types at reading nonverbal cues. In your admirable attempts to convey a message diplomatically, those who aren't sensitive to inflection, tone, insinuations or body language sometimes simply do not get your message because they only receive the verbal half of what you said.

In the same way that you're the best at reading nonverbal cues, you're also the best at sending them. When you speak they miss the nonverbal half of your message, then they speak and transmit twice the message (verbal + nonverbal) which often gives away more than they intended but is sometimes carelessly inaccurate since they don't send nonverbal cues as well as you do. When you're tempted to assign bias based on someone's tone or other nonverbal cues it is wise to have them restate what they said and see if ignoring the careless, unintentional nonverbal half of their message lets their true meaning through.

As a parent you are very supportive and start educating your child early according to your values. Your children know exactly where you stand and what is expected of them. You overflow with positivity when your child sticks to the program, and reflect any negative behavior directly on yourself and the quality of your parenting. Your focus is making sure that your child has a strong self-image and high self-esteem. More than other parents it is important for you to be friends with your children.

You are more philosophical than most and passionately discuss ethics and justice more than other types. Your life has meaning, your life is significant. It is when ethical issues come up in conversation that you most strongly sense that you are fundamentally different from other people. You become visually emotionally focused when these issues arise, while others easily laugh them off and switch topics to something trivial. To you, it seems that everyone should be passionate about ending racism, sexism and all the other –isms out there.

You go by the book and are suspicious of anyone suggesting that rules or laws should be ignored. You think constantly about improving laws, and see that at a major avenue for advancing social change because you see legislation and rule creation as the consensus opinion of the group working together. You want nothing more than for there to be peace and harmony in the world, and your actions clearly reflect that vision.

While you can instantly tell what's on someone else's mind, you can sometimes be confused yourself when it comes to the mixture of your own emotions. This, mixed with your reserved and complex nature can make it difficult for others to get to know you.

You have a special interest in figurative language. You are more strongly moved by poetry and literature than any other type. You are often interested in the finer points of writing and studying literature because you believe that how something is written or spoken is inextricably connected to its meaning.

In school you were an excellent student, the teacher's pet. More than the satisfaction of learning, you enjoyed pleasing your instructors with your hard work and thoughtfulness and delighted in the personal praise they gave you in return. You got to know your instructors on a personal level and may have even kept in touch with certain of them after moving on to other classes.

You can "connect" with any individual person and practically read their mind, but you have a natural tendency to match your actions to the expectations you read from their mind and yearn for company that lets you truly, naturally be yourself. You struggle between letting yourself naturally match the sentiment of the group (which feels like putting on a façade) or letting your individuality shine, which may allow people to see how different you are.

Your life has meaning, your life is significant. You think all people should spend more time thinking about who they are and what their purpose in life is.

I'm not sure how accurate this is, but it was a little more in depth (certainly more in depth) than most internet "personality tests".

Please friend my friend, especially since that friend is me. I now have a site for my artwork and would be most delighted if you would find it in your kind little hearts to help me out.

Much obliged! :^D

This has spooky music and some convincing figures. I've read quite a bit about this theory before this and admit I might just be an official conspiracy theorist at this point. Not only about this, but the Nick Berg thing as well. Any thoughts? I'll give you an Epenny* for 'em.

* I regret that as of this post, Epennies do not yet exist to the best of the author's knowledge.
